Selling Your Franchise

Realizing Your Investment

A franchise company is a great investment for private equity if it has a steady cash flow, a skilled workforce, and a talented management team. Because of this, and because it does not cost a great deal to add more franchise units, profit growth is relatively easy, especially when a franchise company has managed to create a profitable royalty stream.

Because you have invested in laying the profitable foundations, your business is a prime candidate to scale.

Risks of Private Equity Acquisitions

There are potential risks to acquirers, those who have been acquired, and franchisees. To help avoid potential pitfalls, complete confidentiality is paramount until paperwork is signed and the deal is finalized. While this focus on complete discretion is important, it can greatly hinder the buyer’s access to knowledge and learning about the system and its viability.

In addition, the amount of agreements that need to be drafted and signed require an incredible amount of trust, any breach of which can lead to the deal falling through and your franchise system being seen in a less than favorable light by potential buyers.
